New gadgets can bring nostalgia for the technology of yesteryear. The Niyari Atari 400 Style Keyboard from Japanese online store GeekStuff4U is a prime example.
With computers these days pushing the boundaries of modern design to its limits, one can sometimes miss the old days when almost every piece of consumer tech was beige. The Atari 400, for example, was a sort of all-in-one BYOD computer targeted at children. Its beige, brown, and orange keyboard was probably designed to make using a computer in 1979 fun.
The Niyari Atari 400 keyboard mimics the design of the computer's membrane keyboard (a spill-proof keyboard with pressure pads for keys), but adds some modern chiclet keys. It also has a numerical keypad, which was not found on the original computer.
Keen on getting one? Well you can't. The online store has discontinued its 11,980 yen ($144) novelty peripheral and recommends that folks look at other keyboards as an alternative.
